HIV/AIDS Epidemic Calling Out for Action by Dept. of Public Health

A few days ago, we noted that HIV/AIDS is exempted from the pandemic control measures proposed in Bill S2028. While isolation and quarantine of carriers may not apply, testing and closing dangerous venues would certainly be reasonable.  

HIV/AIDS is clearly a "disease or condition dangerous to the public health.

We suggested that the Department of Public Health might consider closing down such venues as the Ramrod Bar in Boston. Mandatory HIV testing has even been called for by the Gay Men's Health Crisis in New York.*  And wouldn't it be great if it were possible to ban web sites such as (Yeah, we know that policing the Internet is impossible.)

Consider these suggestions (hardly novel, but clearly non-PC) in light of the recent CDC report that homosexual and bisexual men are more than 50 times more likely to have HIV

See Peter LaBarbera (

Homosexual, Bisexual Men 50 Times More Likely to Have HIV:  CDC
So why won’t the government move to close down “gay” sex clubs and teach about the special dangers of homosexual sex in schools? 

So much for gay “equality.” The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) — the U.S. government agency tasked with guarding Americans’ health — has finally put a number on the massively increased HIV risk associated with unequal_logo_hrc_is_wrong.JPG“men who have sex with men” (MSM): “gay” and “bi” men are 50 times more likely to have HIV. This does not mean that the Obama administration, like the Bush administration before it, will take some tough, politically incorrect steps necessary to prevent AIDS — like closing down homosexual bathhouses and gay (male) sex clubs in major cities, and educating teenagers on the hugely disproportionate health risks associated with homosexual sex. The relentless pandering by federal, state and local governments to “gay” activists even as these same agencies fight diseases specifically linked to homosexual sex is one of the greatest public policy follies of our time — indeed, of history itself.
The issue in this ongoing “culture war” is not the cause of homosexual “orientation” — or merely the legality of “same-sex marriage.” It’s homosexual behavior itself — and whether government should promote it or discourage it, or be neutral. I say discourage it, since the evidence keeps pouring in that conduct which has been proscribed as immoral down through centuries of Judeo-Christian tradition is also highly dangerous. Now if the CDC will only stop blabbering on about “homophobia” and start telling the truth — that the rectum is not a sexual organ, after all, and that we must take tough measures against “gay” promiscuity — America will become a healthier place. 

See also the D.C. homosexual newspaper, Washington Blade article (8/28/09). Excerpt: 

While the CDC data has continually reported gay and bisexual men and other MSM of all races as the groups with the highest numbers of new HIV cases each year, AIDS activists said this was the first time the CDC clearly stated with a concrete rate how the disease is impacting gay and bisexual men. Gay and bisexual men are also the only risk group in which new infections are increasing.
